First Friday Art March – October!

An Interactive Public Art Experience – Friday, October 3

Magic Passion Love Vision for Humanity

 I believe all humans desire the same thing in in life.  
 From union workers in Savannah, GA, Tallahassee school children, church ladies of Beaumont, Tx to the Radical Fairies of New Orleans.
All people, INCLUDING YOU, desire a place to call home, good food/water to nourish their bodies, a living wage and a sense of purpose.   
 All are worthy. 
I believe we came to Earth to experience Human Love … both a a receiver and giver.  
I believe there is enough of everything for all of us to relax and enjoy.  
as you know, I believe in Magic Passion Love!   And I want to know …
What is your Magic ?   What is your Passion?   What do you LOVE?
These are just some of the questions, I am going to ask at the one night only interactive art experience :
Magic Passion Love – a vision for humanity.   The Manifesting Mobile is going to be on displayed at the Gallery at Foundry Coffee Pub on Habersham and Anderson in Savannah, GA.  It’s part of the First Friday Art March.
The full manifesting mobile consists of over 400 circles made of recycled paper.  The circles are cut to the size of a CD out of of  recycled boxes.  The circles are strung to create a strand of circles, then they are hung to form a line. Rows of strands with the circles are hung on fishing wire that is strung up across the room.  
Walking through the mobile and reading what other people’s visions are … how do your visions similar – what are action are you taking to create your vision are some of the questions Joanne poses to the viewer.  She also encourages the viewer to participate.
 You will have an opportunity to  share your wishes, dreams, intentions and/or visions for yourself or the world using art materials.
What happens when you invite people to share their Magic Passion Love Vision for Humanity – you meet more people who are committed to living from the heart.  Friday night’s event will be casting positive vibrations from all of the people who are willing to be a part of the heart-centered community.   There will be raffle prizes, opportunities to take inspired action with locate community groups and tasty treats from local chefs and businesses.

 Collaboration is key to human evolution!!!

MPL and Vulnerability

I have been asked to facilitate Ted Talk conversation/discussion at Thinc Savannah and the theme… Love & Vulnerability.

To prepare for this, I’ve watch the Tedx Talk video, “The Power of Vulnerability” by Brene Brown at least five times (video below).   Brene researches vulnerability – shame – love among other things — this is amazing for me to hear.    In the beginning of the video she shares a story of someone trying to describe what she does and the word that came up is Storyteller.   She also researches but she is a storyteller – she shares other people’s stories of vulnerability in her work.   I call myself a storyteller too and an artist who wants to offer people opportunities to share being human with others through art & conversation. I’m so curious to see what we are going to share on Thursday !

There are so many conversations that can stem from her twenty minute talk and on Thursday, we most likely will.   As a facilitator, I will need to guide the conversation so that we might be able to come up with doable action steps that we might be able to practice to become more vulnerable – more human.

Why must we be as vulnerable as we possibly can?

This is important because when we are vulnerable – shame & unworthiness has less control over our thoughts/feelings/actions.    When we feel less shame/unworthiness, we feel more connected to others and not so alone.  When we feel less alone it means we have more LOVE.   When we have more LOVE we are able to be Connected to the Heart Energy Source of the Universe.

Right now, I feel like so many of us our holding so much shame & guilt about our finances, our bodies, our planet, our government, our decisions … the list could go on.

I know I have guilt that ,I am I owe back taxes & student loans,
I still eat wheat/sugar and I feel helpless about what’s happening in our government offices.

Because I have been doing the spiritual work for a few years now, I also have the ability to know that I am only responsible for my own actions/thoughts/feelings.

When I make positive choices in these areas, I have positive results … and when challenges arise, I have a choice to handle in a positive manner.Everything has a creative solution and it’s a matter of staying aligned with your LOVE that allows you to move through life enjoyably.

Staying aligned with LOVE POWER means you need to really be able to FEEL it – to really FEEL it means you have to be so aware of all of your SENSES!!!!!!!!!

If you numb any of your senses – including your Sixth Sense, it’s harder to feel the full power of LOVE.   When you have the full power of LOVE energy – you are a Master Manifestor.   I have experienced this … and it does feel amazing.     THEN…  my vulnerability starts to waver because of something triggers my SHAME & UNWORTHINESS of being Human.

The Human Experience is the biggest challenge in the Universe according to many people and I have to agree sometimes.   We are a planet of human beings all afraid to show our true selves … however, we are at an interesting moment in time when our consciousness is raising, everywhere.

What does this mean?  I believe it means that it is becoming safe to share our emotional vulnerabilities.   There is a difference between being physical vulnerable. With more and more people having the COURAGE to share their feelings about the human experience – more people having COMPASSION for themselves & others is allowing MORE CONNECTION with others who love being their authentic selves and knowing those who live their lives wholehearted.

Yes, it is scary – this is why I came up with the MPL Art Card:  Do what U R Afraid Of.   What am I scared of actually typing and sharing my words & ideas on a daily basis with a blog.   (wow – I’ve overcome a fear! yay).   What else am I scared of – being a life artist mentor/muse to others so that they may inspire others with their lives.

As I write this blog, I am feeling the fear disappear and I’m getting more comfortable with being vulnerable.   To become comfortable with my vulnerability, I’m leaning into the Joy of what my desires are – I am putting myself out there in safe spaces like Thinc Savannah – I am loving my life here in Savannah with my whole heart all the while still finding a place in my heart for NYC & other places – and Believing that I am enough!   I do enough.  I am smart/talented enough.  I am clever enough.  I am spiritual enough.  I am enough right now… we are always in motion.   So every moment is an opportunity to be vulnerable enough.    I’m taking a lot of breaths writing this because it’s easy to be vulnerable sitting alone, listening to KCWR in the headphones, in my amazing art studio … what happens when I have to leave.

This is where I have the choice to ask for help from the Angels/Spirit Muses … to be with me because with their energy surrounding me.  It’s safe to share Love with others – the world needs our love … and is very grateful for all of the love it receives.    This is why there is a growing “FEEL GOOD VIBE” raising up – out of the old, dying, decaying system that is trying its best to keep us defenseless & alone — if we step into LOVE & VULNERABILITY – imagine the amazing things we will create.

I’m already experiencing things that I have been visualizing – my art studio at Anahata Healing Arts is a dream come true.   It has also been an amazing opportunity to learn how to become more vulnerable as I’m co-creating this space with others.   Others who are have the COURAGE to share their feelings about the human experience – who have the COMPASSION for themselves & others.    We are COMMITTED to working on the COMMUNICATION so we can stay CONNECTED with each other and live our lives wholehearted together   It’s been Emotional and FREEING!   As I was going through a painful 24 hours, all I could think was, “THANK YOU, Joanne for having the courage to feel the sadness/shame and to let it go. Release it.”   Because I did, I feel so much stronger … and as the Sun is coming through the clouds after weeks of rain,   I feel so energized for the spring.    I am ready to plant the seeds in my life because I love nurturing my Life Garden of Art!

Much love to you who is reading this – thank you for being a part of Trickydame’s Spiritual Journey.   If you would like to be on the email list, please add your name.

Check out the Anahata Healing Arts webpage – there are some great opportunities to share your wholehearted self!

9 words…

NINE words to use in your DAILY LIFE to



When your PERCEPTION SHIFTS – this is the opportunity for MAGIC to occur!

When your COURAGE SHIFTS – this is how PASSION begins!

When your CONSCIOUSNESS SHIFTS – this means more LOVE is flowing into/through your heart — with more LOVE in your life, means you are Happier, Healthier and you FEEL GOOD BEING YOU!   WOW!

My vision is for as many people to FEEL GOOD 24/7 – as this happens (because it is!), our collective consciousness is rising – which means we are having more of us our accessing POSITIVE CONSCIOUSNESS.

It’s that simple.   Simple doesn’t mean there is no ACTION involved – there is a lot of ACTION and we are in control of how we PERCEIVE the ACTION that is necessary to take.

It takes COURAGE to believe in you – I believe in YOU!   YOU CAN DO THIS –

The MAGIC PASSION LOVE Ideal World is one where or all people to experience the Beauty & Joy of being a part of the human experience.    I wish all people to be an active part in co-creating a thriving & sustainable place for all creatures on this planet to flourish by using their skills and talents.

We are not here for ourselves, but for future generations – this should be our priority.

It is important for all of us to love ourselves and each other a little more. Love enough so we continue to move in the direction of peace on earth.   Being aware of Magic Passion Love makes one care.  Feels good to share.

The Sun is available as an energy source for all of us to ACCESS & USE!  Use the SOLAR ENERGY to anchor & ground your path, your growth, your expansion!

This is a very important time as the influences are huge.  Anything you put your attention on will magnify.

The SHIFT everyone is talking about is not something that happens to humanity – it’s is something that is   CO-CREATED by HUMANITY!

We are the Designing Force!

June 21, 2010 –  I was living on Tybee Island, GA for about a month.   I had been away from my NYC life since April.   I moved into the attic of the Carbo House and had no idea what was going to come next … It was the beginning of my life outside of New York City.   I was learning how to LET GO of EXPECTATIONS … and TRUSTING in the Divine – in my Angels!

Here is an excerpt from my journal …

Being here on Tybee has really changed my perspective. I took a step away from what I called “Home” to travel in search of another home.  Last night I was sharing a great night with a new friend who is also new here, we both agree we love it here however, it’s not our final destination.  As corny as this sounds, My home is not ONE PLACE.   My Home is built around my Spiritual Family and this keeps growing.  For we are all one Tribe of Earthlings.   I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be doing or even how I”m supposed to share Magic Passion Love… I just know WHY I’m doing it.  Because it feels good!  WE need to share things that make US Feel Good (perhaps FEEL GOD).

Feel GOD – bring more of the spiritual consciousness in our every day living  – everything is sacred.

I’ve started to re-read my journals so I can see how far I’ve evolved over these past few years.  One thing that has really been revealed to me is that my “Home” is where ever I choose to be as long as I surround myself with spiritual people.    When you make the effort to stay aligned with your “true essence” – you attract those people who value sacred living.   It’s been almost a year since I returned to Savannah to live – and as I look back at all of the other choices I could have made to live – I know that all of them still are CHOICES I can make.   Nothing is permanent – nothing is forever – every year – we celebrate a NEW Beginning of Summer!    Every day is a start of something new.

It’s important to remember this. 


dawning of the new age according to trickydame

when the moon is in the seventh house and jupiter aligns with mars
Then peace will guide the planets and love will steer the stars

December 21, 2012, the end of the Mayan Calendar – what does this mean? Lots of people have been speculating for years about this date – why did they end it here. What did the Mayans know that we don’t know? What is going to happen in 24 days!?

Over the last few years a lot of people having been proclaiming the END of DAYS and it feels like we have been seeing a lot more natural disasters. One reason I feel like we are hearing about the earthquakes/hurricanes/tornados is because of social media Social media has been very influential in creating the collective consciousness.

The collective conscious is growing at a very fast pace, I wanted to share this today because some of you might be experiencing a variety of physical unexplained symptoms – fatigue, random emotional swings from low to high, hearing ringing or other sounds (even your voice being called), seeing flashes of light, hungry and food doesn’t satisfy it, and sore feet or other aches in the body. This is all part of the Ascension – the Shift!

On Dec 21, the Milky Way, sun & moon will align – to have this happen; we know that all of the planets & stars are shifting. If they are shifting and we are part of it – how does affect us?!

Then there are the SOLAR FLARES! Last March, I was in Austin and it was during a large activity of flares. I’m not giving the “actual scientific numbers’ but what happen is, the sun is made of a Carbon #7, during the flares it was shooting off carbon #9 – which is the same that is in Humans. So this means the sun rays were matching our rays – strengthening our energy source. I like to think of it as turning a Light Bulb in our spirit. I felt random flashes of heat — and yes, I was in Austin however, it was in March, spring time weather.

The other thing that happened in this month was Jupiter & Venus were aligning – – Jupiter represents the planet of Logic – Venus Love. Logic and Love are aligning with Love Surpassing Logic … interesting, huh. These shifts in our Universe are helping with the Collective Conscious moving into a Heart Consciousness thus one of LOVE & PEACE!

Now when I say Collective Conscious I don’t mean that we are all thinking the same thing or same way – what I mean is we are connected energetically thru the HEART. Our real consciousness as humans comes from the HEART. I believe the reason Humans exist is to experience, share & teach HUMAN LOVE in all aspects. The LOVE of HUMANITY is what is helping the shift into the next phase of Universal Evolution!

There will be those who are resisting it because of blocks of all kinds – anger, greed, fear – they are being guided by their ego/mind – the logic that no longer fits in this time space continuum. AND that’s ok – because Free Will is also part of the human experience. We have choices.

My question is – IMAGINE if more of us started making choices from the heart? All of our intentions were from a place of LOVE – IMAGINE the kind of world we could be living in!

From my experience, a lot of us ARE making choices from a place of LOVE! My own personal life choices have guided me to people & situations where I am witnessing & experiencing a Loving Collective Conscious.

My first experience was the days after September 11, 2001. I was living in NYC at the time and when people ask me my experience, I tell them, “It was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever experienced”. This shocks many people because how could a day when hate fueled a mass murder – I say this because yes, people died a tragic horrible physical death, they also experience a mass spiritual shift. The reason I believe this is because at the moment, the towers fell down, I was standing in my hallway and had a moment of “what the fuck is happening?” My neighbor who was in full Survival mode was telling me that I needed to fill my bath tub with water in case our water supplies get cut off. He was saying a bunch of stuff and all I could think was … “WOW, this is an opportunity for World Peace”. I held that thought for a while and it was pure bliss. Now looking back, I believe I felt the surge of the souls moving from the physical world to the spiritual realm. The rest of that day was spent with loved ones and the following days, everywhere you went in NYC, you felt the heart of others. And for the first 36 hours after the news traveled to every person on this planet with access to news, the human heart connected the entire planet Earth. Then … the fear/anger/greed of the mind/ego took over and guided us to war. I find it really interesting that a decade later in the same city, another physical attack happened – Hurricane Sandy. This time however, there were no human enemies to attack – we had to sit and feel the loss, the pain, and the heart and move on.

Moving is what it’s all about right now.

How many people do you know who are making a MOVE right now? I know at least 3 people in Savannah who are moving … transition time is now! I started feeling the need to move in 2009 and left NYC in April 2010. I got rid of my apartment and hopped on the train to Atlanta. I had a place to stay for 3 weeks, after that, I was open. I will never forget how good it was to MOVE and the feeling of stepping fully into the UNKNOWN. I felt really ALIVE!

I claimed the role of a spiritual traveler (the hero’s journey) – going to UNKNOWN places with only the FAITH that I would always be taken care of especially if I answered my call to share Magic Passion Love.

Something was telling me that I needed to meet others who are doing the work to share the importance of the collective conscious. Earlier I mentioned I was in Austin in March – I had traveled to Atx as part of the MPL Art Tour. I started in Jan from Savannah and headed to JAX. Just as I left NYC, I traveled south not knowing where I would be spending the night – well, I knew where I was going to sleep just had never been there before. I had arranged to stay with a couchsurfer – from It was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done, travel around the country and rely on the kindness of strangers to offer me shelter & often food too! Inviting someone into your home is like inviting them into your heart. People who host on CS understand the importance to trust each other and share our hearts – when you do this; you receive so much love & appreciation. With this appreciation from the heart, more positive energy is put out into the world!

I’m still processing my six-month journey and will most definitely be sharing stories about the people I met & the experiences … however, tonight; my intention is to set the stage for what is happening right now.

As I’ve mentioned there are a lot of explanations on why all of this is happening. I’m not saying that my beliefs are the only beliefs because I also believe that your truth is your truth. My truth doesn’t make what’s true for you any less true – each one of us has a responsibility to share their true light … because the world needs the light.

And on a final note, I also believe that the Mayans didn’t actually think the world was ending on Dec 21, 2012 – they were more in tune with their cosmos and their sixth sense that they knew this collective consciousness would happen. I believe they thought, well, why should we keep making the calendar, future generations can add on to it.

Let’s enjoy the present moment because this is what life is all about – living our best life right now!

Magic Passion Love & Blue Christmas

May the Spirit of Christmas live in your heart, today and always. ~ unknown

Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it — and for those like me who choose to celebrate this time of year with quiet solitude and of my own design, I am inspired to meet others who have the courage to celebrate the holidays in their own unique way!!!

Last night I was invited to the Christmas Eve @ Trinity Church, in the Telfair Square, Savannah, GA. I took the opportunity to say yes to be spontaneous and off I went to the “Blue Christmas’ concert.

Trinity is one of the oldest churches in Savannah’s Historic District so I was expecting to go to a beautiful church and hear traditional Christmas Carols. AND IT GOT A PLEASANT SURPRISE!!!

Trinity’s Blue Christmas celebration used the form of Christian worship (especially the traditional Service of the Nine Lessons & Carols) and popular music from 1960s, 70s, and 80s to set the tone. The service was non-traditional and is decidedly non-liturgical! This is the 3rd year they shared this type of service with no pretension or apologies. While this is not the only way the worship – it is one of the ways in which they seek to embrace the mystery of the center of the universe.

Special thanks to Enoch Hendry, the pastor of the church for sharing Christmas Magic Passion Love!!

The evening consisted of 14 “recorded songs’ being played in the sanctuary with everyone sitting in the pews. They lit candles at the end — I loved it!! I’ve always enjoyed “listening parties!” and in a church it was wonderfully special. Here’s a few of them!!

#1 – everybody say cheese “Hallelujah” by kd lang

#2 – we’re all in this together “World Turing” by lea kottke

#3 – life is a mystery! “souvenirs” by john prine

#4 – choices have consequences “river” by joni mitchell

#5 – that’s life! “blue christmas” by elvis

#6 – even so, its worth it “for a dancer” by linda ronstadt & emmy lou harris

#7 – there are (still) signs and wonders “star of bethlehem” by neil young

#8 – you are not alone “the weight” the band

#9 – the world would go on “mother & child” by paul simon


The book is done!!!

New Month – New Opportunities to Be!

July has begun with a BANG …literally here in the US as we celebrated our Independence Day on July 4. I watched the fireworks on the beach on Sunday night, Tybee Island has fireworks on the 3rd not to compete with the fireworks in Savannah. If you have never watched fireworks on the beach, do it sometime because its awesome! As I was sitting there, I started thinking about the time when I used to watch the fireworks on the roof in the East Village, NYC and how spectacular it was. I think the most spectacular moment was when the fireworks ended and all over the city people applaud… the same thing happened on the beach.

I imagined we were all clapping for our collective belief in Freedom – Peace – Tolerance and MAGIC PASSION LOVE!!
